Another very impressive red, this one more for the future than the moment. Colour is exuberant purples and vibrant crimsons. The wine is elegance personified. A fragrant nose with notes of dry herbs, aniseed, tobacco leaf, cedar and blackcurrants. Immaculate balance here, with focus and line, backed by underlying fresh acidity. Serious length, a Cabernet with structure and flavour. That said, and while it is very attractive now, it really deserves a further stint – five to ten years – in the cellar.
